    Mowed today with it and am impressed! I bought the mower sight unseen but talked to some golf courses and others who use them. I couldn't believe were I could mow with this thing. It's really hard to scalp anything. I took it were I usually have to use a 44". I hope it becomes a time saver and money maker for me.

    I would love to have one but my dealer is 3 hours away. I never had a new machine that didn't have a bunch of problems. Which machine did you get? Keep us posted please.

    I bought the 61" with a 28 efi kohler. My closest dealer is 2 hours away and they are brand new. My local mechanics have been great about working on things. Engines, hydros, ect... are almost all the same so they can work on many different things. I hope for minimal problems though. So far I'm excited.

    Did you get the fixed deck or the articulating?

    Articulating and it is amazing what you can get away with. Burms, gullys or whatever it's really hard to make it scalp.,
